Hi! My name is Ashley Smith and I am so excited to be a part of the 1st grade team this year at Barrett. I recently received my Bachelors of Arts in elementary education from Marymount University and relocated back to the Arlington area from Northern New Jersey. This summer I finished my master's degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in reading through the distance learning program at the University of Cincinnati. Outside of the classroom I enjoy visiting our reading at the beach or by the pool, running and swimming, teaching swim lessons, and watching the Redskins and Maryland Terps football games. I am looking forward to having another great year getting to know all of the students, families, and staff of Barrett Elementary!
